Tactics Corner

  • We wanted to take a look at the new White Scars for some potential combos and list ideas.
    • HQs
      • Primaris Khan is a beast! He with a unit of Veteran Intercessors in a Repulsor are amazing.
      • With the extra attacks they gain from being Veterans and from Shock Assault, you have a unit that puts out potentially 40+ attacks that hit are +1 to wound.
      • If you also take the Banner of the Eagle for +1 Strength, vs. T4 and lower units you are wounding on 2’s. That is devastating and on turn 3, you’re also doing 2 damage per attack with an additional AP-1.
      • Khan on a Bike is another great choice. Give him the Wrath of the Heavens relic bike, which is awesome, as it moves 16″ and can move over other models and terrain which is extremely good.
      • Plume of the Plainsrunner is another fantastic choice for a relic as it adds 1″ to Advance and Charge rolls which goes perfectly with the Ride the Winds psychic power which adds 2″ to Advance and Charge rolls.
      • A Librarian with the Mantle of the Stormseer granting a +1 to cast White Scars powers will be extremely popular for bringing these combos together.
      • Vanguard Vets in reserves as well as Drop Pods will be quite good for White Scars.

    i dont want him to leave the top 10 D: its like that story of the guy who played lots of forza with his friend and it lets you race ghost cars of their best times and he gets to keep racing with his friend and never beats his time so they can still play

      Yeah, it will be a sad day when he gets bumped off of the top 10, but it is also inevitable.

      That’s a cool story! Would be fun to still be able to play against your friend’s best race.
